Consistency is key

CONSISTENCY IS KEY!

So, it’s just a few days more to the end of the year and somehow I ask myself ‘Where did the year go?!’ Maybe like me, you set goals to achieve for the year. You probably prayed and fasted. You sowed seeds, worked hard, did everything humanly possible, but yet…you are still unmarried; you have still not been promoted; you have still not gotten a job; your health is still not restored; your marriage still does not look like it’s working; your account balance has still not risen above ‘sea level’. I am here to however encourage you…don’t give up! Keep trying!

There is a certain power in consistency that I have come to experience over time. Consistency simply means being steady; keeping at something even though it doesn’t look like it’s working, till it works (that’s my own definition). There is a power in trying, trying and trying again till it works. Think of Thomas Edison who kept trying to invent a light bulb. He was consistent in trying, till he got it at the 1000th trial!

consistency

Consistency is like the story of the man who was trying to cut down a very big and strong tree. He started cutting at about 7am. At first it looked like nothing was happening, but he kept at it, till the tree finally fell with a loud sound at about 10pm. It wasn’t the last blow of the axe that fell the tree, rather, it was the cumulative effect of all the strikes/blows. So yes, you have been praying, keep praying; yes you have been serving in your Church unit, keep serving; you have been fasting, keep fasting. And when you find yourself falling, just pick yourself back up and keep trying. Because like the Bible says in Habakkuk 2: 1-3, that dream, that vision, that promotion, that job, that marriage, that baby, is for an appointed time and at the end…if you don’t give up…it will speak!

So keep up the good work, keep applying for that job/promotion, keep your dreams alive, keep being hopeful, for in due season, you will be rewarded if you faint not!

Warm caresses, deep – long and wet kisses…

All he had ever dreamed of, happening right before him…

Soft flesh,  yet more soft and enthralling flesh – all at his disposal,

Alas! A dream come true!!!!  His head yells

And there goes your dream; down the drain!!!! His Spirit warns

He jerks back to reality!!!

We must stop this, NOW!!!

Picks up singlet, buckles belt!!!

Stop being naive, we both want this… She nudges!!!

It’s going to be an experience, trust me… She probes further!!

Yes!!! He interjects.  An experience I don’t want to forget but remember and smile –  not with guilt

Buttons up his shirts, picks up Bible and Bible Study manual which was the main but forgotten reason for the visit!!!!

As he reaches for the door and walks into the thick darkness of the night

He sighed then smiled and made his ‘killing’ straight face with his Bible tightly clutched to his chest just as The Words therein clutched tightly to his heart.

He thought to himself , I want this…. But….

Joy Comes In the Morning

0

 

PSALM 30:5b ”weeping may endure for a night, but joy cometh in the morning”.

To weep means to cry or shed tears, it could also mean to lament.

People often times weep when they are faced with one form of difficulties or the other. In this country today, many are lamenting due to the current economic situation of the country. Even as believers there are times we when pour out our mind to God in tears, there are times, we cry unto God in prayers due to the situations we are going through.

As believers we have been assured by His Word that, though weeping may endure for a night but joy cometh in the morning

joy3

 

Whatever you are experiencing today as a believer, count it that it is only for a moment, because no matter how thick the darkness all through the night, it cannot stop the light of day.

When you go through the dark times in your life always remember that God is with you. This He promised in His word:

Isaiah  43:2 ”When thou passest through the waters, I will be with thee; and through the rivers, they shall not overflow thee: when thou walkest through the fire, thou shalt not be burned; neither shall the flame kindle upon thee”.

Matthew 28:20b ”and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen”.

Brethren, sin is the major thing that can make the joy and morning of a man to tarry.

Isaiah 59:1&2   Behold, the LORD’s hand is not shortened, that it cannot save; neither his ear heavy, that it cannot hear: But your iniquities have separated between you and your God, and your sins have hid his face from you, that he will not hear.

His eyes are too holy to behold iniquities and devil knows this, that is why he goes about to tempting believers to ensure they fall into sin so he can have the free hand to manipulate them and stop their blessings and joy.

Our journey here on earth could also be likened to night but at the end when we shall be with our Heavenly Father in eternity, we shall experience everlasting joy that knows no bound.

I pray we shall all make it IN JESUS NAME.

Refiners Fire (Season III)

0

This is a labour under God to deal with the dross in our lives and to wash the dirts off of our garments of ministry, so as to have a life that is approved and a service that fits God’s divine pattern.

It is the contradictions of our lives that make unbelievers wary of the gospel of our LORD Jesus Christ. He Himself is ready to sit over our lives in these last days as a refiner (Malachi 3:2-3) to personally deal with our inner struggles with the works of the flesh that makes us look like we are not born again, so that we can manifest the nature of Christ and be as effective as men of old were with their witness of our LORD. He will also wash our “clothes” with the fuller’s soap (Malachi 3:2). This washing will redefine the way the work of God is done and it will also ensure that we are in tune with our Head, Christ, by serving in the appropriate place and staying in our assigned roles.

 

The LORD wants all of us believers to be equipped to share in the work of discipleship of the nations. No matter who we become, how much money we earn, and how much influence in society, they are all to serve the purpose of God, the heavenly vision, and not our earthly desires.

Forget Not (Lest we forget)

0

It’s so easy to forget; as humans, we have a tendency to adjust to the moment by removing our attention from the past. It’s not advisable to live in the past, but we must never forget some things. Those who forget their past, do so at the expense of their future. Your history is the building block for your tomorrow.

Tomorrow belongs only to those who are thankful for today!

As 2016 is about to use the exit door, it’s time to reflect, it’s time to remember. Jolt yourself, pinch yourself to remember how you get here.
Remember God, thank Him for His goodness so far. Don’t forget to give special thanksgiving offering (verbally and in substance).

lestweforget

Forget NOT…Don’t forget your God,
Forget not your source,
Remember who brought you this far,
Remember where your blessing and giftedness came from…

Now that you’re grown, (or so you think); don’t forget the One who fostered you.
Don’t depart from the way of life, don’t abandon the highway of holiness,
Don’t exchange true riches for pebbles. Remember the fountain of life.
Remind yourself; Away from God, you are nothing, you’re nobody…going nowhere.
All your self devised alternatives cannot hold water, they are fluke! Repent and return! The Lord is your ONLY source, without Him, you can do nothing!

Remember where you came from; your humble background, the misfortune you recovered from, the successful business you own now, that sprang from an experience of unemployment and financial difficulty. Let your memory shape you into a better character. Remember, remember!

Don’t forget to appreciate those who helped you up, who taught you, fed you, trained you and created a ladder for you to climb upon.
Remember to thank those in relationship with you, who made 2016 a remarkable and success-filled year.  Make conscious effort to thank your family and friends, staff and associates, clients and customers. Now is the time to show gratitude.

God has been good to you…even YOU!
Remember to say thanks and tell everyone how good God has been to you.
Forget NOT!

“Has any nation ever traded its gods for new ones, even though they are not gods at all? Yet my people have exchanged their glorious God for worthless idols! The heavens are shocked at such a thing and shrink back in horror and dismay,” says the LORD. “For my people have done two evil things: They have abandoned me— the fountain of living water. And they have dug for themselves cracked cisterns that can hold no water at all!” (Jeremiah‬ ‭2:11-13‬ ‭NLT‬‬)

Bless the LORD, O my soul; And all that is within me, bless His holy name! Bless the LORD, O my soul, And forget not all His benefits: Who forgives all your iniquities, Who heals all your diseases, Who redeems your life from destruction, Who crowns you with lovingkindness and tender mercies, Who satisfies your mouth with good things, So that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s. (‭Psalms‬ ‭103‬:‭1-5‬ NKJV)

Glorious Word Intl Christian Centre at 7

Glorious Word international christian centre 7th anniversary

There is something special about the number 7. Some have said it is the number of perfection and completion. Have you ever wondered why when God worked for 6 days in the creation account of Genesis 1, he got to the 7th day and he rested? 7 is also a number of rest.

There was a proclamation in Deut 15:1 (NLT)

At the end of every seventh year you must cancel the debts of everyone who owes you money.

There is a good news you need to hear, 7 years ago, God birthed a great vision in the heart of his son Pst. Akinyemi Awosefaju. That vision is now 7 years old and God has promised to visit us with a prophetic release. The place to be on Sunday 6th November is at Glorious Word International Christian Centre.
